Thanks, Cara. I came to terms awhile back that my pain will never go away and as is happening now, will only get worse. It is a fact of life. What I have isn't fatal, but the sum of my diagnoses are debilitating and I have accepted that. Through my faith and my pain clinics I am equipped to deal with whatever comes...I don't have to like it, but it won't break me!

Ma was a huge inspiration for me. I will never forget her.

Other things too but I don't want to bore you.

I could get down about this but I am a fighter and have better things to do than mope. I must say I am so glad I am back here though. Reading everyone else's stories helps to lift me up.

Now I have to go make some triple chip cookies for Andy!
I'm glad you came back too, Laurie.

I was thinking about Ma today too and missing her.

Cookies?? Yesterday for the first time in over a year, and the first time at 7000 ft altitude, I made cookies; peanut butter with chocolate chips. They were a little dry, but perfectly edible

I've heard of milk-dunking and coffee- dunking, but never tea-dunking. Makes sense though.

My mother and I would have tea and toast. We had to dunk.

I'm very happy! Carl and Lakisha are spending tonight here. We have been studying, and now we are through with that.

We're here looking at posts and then we'll watch the Grinch.

Mamma and I have done some Christmas shopping today for Papa, DA, Gwen, and DAB. I have missed her so very much. At home, she would take me shopping for presents, and we always stopped at a little cafe for coffee and pastries.

Today was as the old times with Mamma. She drove my Joy and she loved her! And we found a nice little cafe and we had tea and soup.

This may sound very odd, but I find myself loving my parents many times over. Maybe someday if I adopt my children, I may be as good of a parent as they are.

With love,
~Cat

I'm repeating to myself, "I love my cat, I love my cat, I LOVE my cat" so I don't forget it! He just vomited all over the entire couch! I don't know if you non cat people will be able to believe that, but the cat owners will. It's like he sprouted a sprinkler head and sprayed vomit EVERYWHERE. I even had to take a Q Tip and clean out one of my USB ports on my laptop. Gross. SUPER gross.
